This is like those top 10-20 albums lists that float around, but we don't count by number, only by quality. There was some amazing stuff this year, and it basically floated right past the mainstream and underground media without most of them noticing. Since it's great music, you should hear about it, but you'll have to click on over to our...

Why I am douchebag elitist
If you let in imperfections, you destroy what it is to be something. You ruin the sense of its consistent quality and thus, its sense of purpose. While nice guys may run these bands, and they may be "close," we should shut them out to respect the originals and the purpose they had.

From the snow-covered environs of Norway and secluded graveyards of England to the dark forests of Germany and remote woodlands of Poland and Ukraine, an unstoppable Black Metal beast has dominated the extreme end of the musical scale for more than two decades.
Black Metal is an aesthetic, an emotion, an attitude and, for many, a way of life. Exposing the inner workings of your delicate eardrums to unbridled screams of primeval fury, an unending torrent of galloping rhythms and indomitable wall of buzzing guitars is like being thrown head-first into the whirling eye of a chthonic vortex. Black Metal can be disturbing, invigorating, provoking and empowering. One persistent and enduring image that is often associated with Black Metal is that of semi-comedic corpse-paint, futile church-burnings and Satanic ritual; but the genre itself can often take on a decidedly political and cultural form and many of its exponents have controversial views and opinions that are frequently overlooked by the commentators of the underground music industry.
We aim to examine some of those tendencies in Black Metal: European Roots & Musical Extremities. Contributors include Troy Southgate, Tony 'The Demolition Man' Dolan (Venom/Atomkraft/M-Pire of Evil), Jeff 'Mantas' Dunn (Venom/Mantas/M-Pire of Evil), Hendrik Möbus (Absurd), Alex Kurtagic (Supernal Records), Jarl von Hagall (Der Stürmer), Alexander Wieser (Uruk-Hai), William Vithólf (Fanisk), Gareth Giles (Hrafnblóð), Matt Kay (Wodfreca Records), Vijay Prozak (Deathmetal.org), Elena Semenyaka, Erik Proft, Smierc Polarstern, Neil Hiatt, Nils Wegner and Chris G. Hicks.
Signed copies of Black Metal: European Roots & Musical Extremities are now available to pre-order. The book will be around 200 pages in length and costs just £15 with free postage to anywhere in the world. The Paypal address is: firstname.lastname@example.org

If they can have a "National Day of Prayer,"
We can have a National Day of Slayer!
Culture is something you can inherit, or choose. We choose metal as our culture, and Slayer as our ambassador. No other band captures the spirit of metal with such intensity. Every year on June 6, we celebrate the International Day of Slayer to hail this spirit.
How to Celebrate
- Listen to Slayer at full blast in your car.
- Listen to Slayer at full blast in your home.
- Listen to Slayer at full blast at your place of employment.
- Listen to Slayer at full blast in any public place you prefer.
DO NOT use headphones! The objective of this day is for everyone within earshot to understand that it is the National Day of Slayer. National holidays in America aren't just about celebrating; they're about forcing it upon non-participants.
Taking that participation to a problematic level
- Stage a "Slay-out." Don't go to work. Listen to Slayer.
- Have a huge block party that clogs up a street in your neighborhood. Blast Slayer albums all evening. Get police cruisers and helicopters on the scene. Finish with a full-scale riot.
- Spray paint Slayer logos on churches, synagogues, or cemeteries.
- Play Slayer covers with your own band (since 99% of your riffs are stolen from Slayer anyway).
- Kill the neighbor's dog and blame it on Slayer.
